Sarah Jane 🔪’s review published on Letterboxd:
I'm not a huge fan of horror comedies. For example, EVIL DEAD? No thanks, it's just not for me. I tend to judge all horror comedy against AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON. That, to me, is the best and nothing has ever come close to it for me. That is, until now.
I'm sure many of you will argue with me about labeling this horror comedy instead of just straight up horror with some comedic elements. Whatever. US is fucking funny.
The cast is great. Lupita is a goddess and Winston Duke is all kinds of yum. The kids in this were amazing, too. Peele has got the goods. That one long take towards the end of the film as Lupita is going down the escalator and through the hallways... perfect.
The last 20 minutes or so is where shit does get creepy as fuck. As someone who has seen it all, I felt this part.
Shout out to the guy next to me who yelled "OH HELL NO!" when the family shows up in the driveway. He was jumping all through this thing.
AWIL is still tops but US is pretty fucking close.
